Creative Scotland is committed to offering clear and accessible application processes and programmes that are open to everyone.

On request any of our main published materials, including funding guidance and application forms, is available in alternative formats including translations. 

We offer access support to disabled applicants, tailored to individual requests. Support includes Sign Language Interpreters for meetings and scribing support for dyslexic applicants. Creative Scotland officers can offer advice to new applicants and support them to make an application. The Creative Scotland Equalities Team can offer additional one-to-one support to applicants with access requirements.

Please note we will accept applications and supporting materials which are written in English, Gaelic or Scots.
